The Sultanate of Oman has experienced decades of rapid economic growth aided in part by the oil production sector and growth of a variety of infrastructural projects that has placed the construction sector at the heart of the country’s economic development. Recent trends indicate a global shift towards eco-friendly and sustainable business practices in achieving economic growth, a pattern which has encouraged the Omani government to promote sustainability as a key consideration in future development projects by various stakeholders.
